Illini Need to Rock the Mike (Tisdale, Davis) Right this Season

During the last Illinois Fighting Illini season, they were too many college basketball games in which Bruce Weber could have described Demetri McCamey by a familiar rock anthem.  The Cars’: “you’re all I’ve got tonight. I need you. Tonight!”

If there’s one thing I do know, it’s that Big Ten and NCAA expectations at Illinois will only materialize if that song becomes played out and obsolete; metaphorically speaking.

If there’s a second thing I know, it’s don’t live with a woman whose behavior draws Tara Reid comparisons, and worse yet takes those comparisons as profound compliments. Because either situation (over-reliance on one player or dating a Tara Reid wannabe) will inevitably end badly.

Illini Head Coach Bruce Weber has said “we’ll be as good as our seniors,” and that means McCamey, but it also means Center Mike Tisdale and Power Forward Mike Davis.
